GAIA’s first decade ended in December 2010-and we spent 2011 putting together stories and images to share a snapshot of the alliance’s collective work.

GAIA’s values include taking the time to appreciate one another and to celebrate our success and work together. We hope this report, “GAIA 10: 10 Years of Community Action for Zero Waste Solutions,” will be an opportunity for collective reflection and celebration.
